Baking with Nana

When I first saw this stamp it was a "must have" because it reminded me my granddaughter in Texas. She'll soon be 11 and, oh how I miss getting grandma time with her, and doing all the fun things grandma's do with granddaughter's. Of course, you can do the same with grandson's, which I did when they were small, but now they are grown men and no longer want to spend time cooking in the kitchen with gma.

The stamp is from a Christmas Collection set by Elizabeth Bell created exclusively for  Bells 'n Whistles Stamps

Again, let me wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and A Safe and Happy New Year!  Thanks so very much for stopping by and if you have time to leave a note that will be much appreciated.  I'll be back with more next year, if not sooner.  Ohhhhhhhh, that sounds like such a long time away, how about next week.

Mo's Bismark at Christmas

Isn't Bismark just the cutest! He reminds me of my schnauzer Sparkey, except for the floppy ears. This is my first card with a digi image to post and I just fell in love with him.  Got him at Mo's Digital Pencil  Shop. Whipped him up the other night to give to his groomer today.  She's not just any groomer, she bathes him every week and full grooms him every 2 weeks. He likes going to see her as much as he likes staying home because she spoils him as much as I do. Here is another picture and maybe you can see the silver embossing on the tree and the clear crystals. The snowflakes were done using MS Snowflake punch and then covered with Stardust Stickles.  Paper is from my stash and the corner embellies are a quarter of the large round Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circle.

Oops! No silver embossing but you can see the crystals used on the tree and  his

And, to finish off this post, here's a picture of my "little man" Sparkey - Love those blue eyes!

Thanks so much for stopping by. If you have time to leave me a short note that will be greatly appreciated as I so love to read your comments.  I'll have one more post for you after this but I want to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year!

Charlotte & Reindeer

Oops! I've sure missed getting my cards in on time for several challenges but I get did get some of them done and want to share with you all.  This stamp by Whiff of Joy, Charlotte Riding Reindeer is just the cutest.  I made it for the November 15th challenge over at Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenges as it was to include snowflakes and lots of glitter.  I just loved the paper from my stash and thought it would work really good for snowflakes. Then what was I going to do?  Well, what else but copic up Charlotte and Reindeer, then cut them out and popped them on the snowy background.  The snowflakes are punched from MS snowflake punch and glitzed up with Stardust Stickles. They come pretty close to matching the snowflakes on the paper. Those Stardust Stickles really make the flakes shine.  Hope this picture gives you a better view of the glitz.  Have no idea why that extra line is in there......

Thanks so much for stopping by. As always, your comments are greatly appreciated.  Hope to see  you again soon.
